"Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell I had to learn how to fight for myself. And we both know all the truth I could tell I'll just say this is I wish you farewell.

I hope you're somewhere praying, praying. I hope your soul is changing, changing. I hope you find your peace, Falling on your knees, praying.
I'm proud of who I am. No more monsters, I can breathe again. And you said that I was done. Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come."

2. "Fight Song" by Rachel Platten (2015)

"This is my fight song, Take back my life song, Prove I'm alright song. My power's turned on, Starting right now I'll be strong, I'll play my fight song. And I don't really care if nobody else believes, Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me."

5. "Try" by Pink (2012)

Oh, mirror in the sky

What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changin' ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you

14. "Used to love you" by Gwen Stefani (2004)

You can keep all the memories

I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you
I thought you loved me the mostI don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you


That I used to love you

15. "Try" by Nelly Furtado

Then I see you standing thereWanting more from me

And all I can do is try, tryI wish I hadn't seen all of the realness
And all the real people are really not real at all
The more I learn the more I learn
The more I cry the more I cry

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
